Listen: PAWS Owls Talons Clenching My Heart
Apr 23, 2014 2:00pm | CMJ

PAWS – Photo by Martin Baker

The great thing about PAWS’ new track, Owls Talons Clenching My Heart, is its honesty. Despite the track’s super poetic title, the lyrics are simple and confused: “And I feel bad, because youll be mad/and thatll make you sad/and I dont want to make you sad.” It reads like a note written in the middle of the night from one lover (or ex-lover) to another. The echo-y nature of the vocals captivates and invites you to snuggle into its warmth. Listen to the track (via Stereogum) below, and anticipate some mixed emotions.

Time to stock up on Red Bull: Bonnaroo has revealed the lineup of artists who will play late-night sets during this year’s festival.

This mean artists such as Kanye West, Jack White, Elton John,  Vampire Weekend, Arctic Monkeys, Phoenix, Lionel Richie, Damon Albarn, and Neutral Milk Hotel will play sets at a much more reasonable time of day. (Says the guy who wakes up at 6:00am every day.) The full schedule will be revealed shortly.

Chart Attack presents Universe: A Live Soundtrack Experiment, featuring Absolutely Free and Fresh Snow
Apr 23, 2014 1:45pm | Chart Attack

Like most things in vogue with music nowadays, movies with live soundtracks are impractical, yet hold a certain spiritual and sonic allure. We still buy records, and we're strongly considering a physical subscription to Wax Poetics, so it's no surprise that we're now planning a free, all-ages live soundtrack event of our own.

On Thursday, May 15 at The Revue Cinema in Toronto, we're hosting a screening of three galactic short films of our home in space, with original scores, composed and performed live by a trio of local psychedelic acts: Absolutely Free, Fresh Snow, and Marcel Ramagnano. Each artist will bring their own musical meditations from real-life images of people and planets: a montage of archival film footage from planet Earth and its inhabitants; a look at the Apollo 11 mission and man's first steps on the moon; and sublimely abstract (but genuine) satellite photography of Saturn and its moons.

Three films, three performances, one night only. It's fuelled by Pistonhead, with refreshments on sale for $4. Again, the show's free, and you can bring your child.

It's at 400 Roncesvalles Avenue (just south of Dundas West station). Doors at 8:30PM, films start at 9PM sharp. We'll see you Thursday, May 15 for a unique exploration of our cosmic backyard.

Watch Absolutely Free's poolside performance of "Clothed Woman, Sitting" ...

Mixtape Of The Week: Gucci Mane & Young Thug Young Thugga Mane La Flare
Apr 23, 2014 1:42pm | StereoGum

Someone on Twitter (and I wish I could remember who) pointed out a fascinating factoid recently: Every time Gucci Mane goes away to prison — something that happens way too often — one of his 1017 Brick Squad understudies blows the fuck up. First, it was OJ Da Juiceman. Then, it was Waka Flocka Flame. And most recently, after Gucci went away late last year on a weapons charge, it was Young Thug. The craggy-voiced Atlanta weirdo had signed with Gucci’s 1017 Brick Squad earlier in 2013, and he made perfect sense as a new asset in Gucci’s empire. His presence gave Brick Squad an injection of all-over-the-place freewheeling energy. And signing with Gucci gave Thug a certain focus, as well as access to the upper echelon of Atlanta rap producers. Under Gucci, Thug’s music, once dizzy and sometimes impenetrable, became frantic but focused, and those qualities helped him break through on big songs like “Stoner” and “Danny Glover.” But since Thug and Gucci both move in mystery, it’s hard to say where they are with each other now, or when they might’ve made the new tape Young Thugga Mane La Flare. Gucci embraces and rejects collaborators all the time, often set off by completely innocuous offenses. Thug signed with another label immediately after Gucci went to prison, plunging himself into legal limbo with both labels. And since Gucci’s been locked up for months, the tracks on the tape have to date back ...

Touche Amore announce tour w/ Tigers Jaw & Dads (dates)
Apr 23, 2014 1:42pm | Brooklyn Vegan

LA post-hardcore rippers Touche Amore have been loving the road lately. They've already hit NYC on two tours in the past year in support of 2013's great Is Survived By (we caught them at SXSW too), and they've announced yet another string of North American dates from late June through the end of July with Tigers Jaw and Dads. There's no NYC date for this one, but they'll hit Long Island's Revolution Bar & Music Hall on July 15 and they have the day off before that, so hopefully they'll add something in NYC? Tickets for the Long Island show go on sale Friday (4/25) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

You can also catch Tigers Jaw in NYC not long before that when their tour with Pity Sex hits Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 18. Tickets for that show are still available.

All Touche Amore dates, including The Fest, are listed with a recent full-set live video from Tampa, below...

Listen: Joey Bada$$ new song Mr. Wonderful
Apr 23, 2014 1:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

In the past, Joey Bada$$ songs have soundtracked summer block parties, your Valentine’s rendezvous, and even NBA games. Now, the young emcee’s offered his services to the unlikely domain of UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), as his song “Mr. Wonderful” will serve as the entrance music during Phil Davis’ upcoming fight against Anthony Johnson.

With a title taken from Davis’ nickname (not quite as menacing as “Rampage” or “The Smashing Machine”), the song doesn’t instantly feel like proper theme music, as Kirk Knight’s beat of jangly drums and choppy bass feels too abstract or experimental. Luckily, Bada$$’ rhymes bring the pain, as he delivers heavy-handed lines about face-shattering kicks and Davis’ unmatched prowess at breaking arms. Not sure if such theme music will actually help secure a KO, but let’s hope Davis at least avoids the fate of this guy.

Listen in below:

UFC 172 goes down this Saturday at 10pm/7pm ET. Maybe Bada$$ will make an appearance and/or throw some ‘bows?

Boy George played Irving Plaza (pics, setlist, video)

Boy George @ Irving Plaza, 4/22/2014

George quoted Eckhart Tolle telling the crowd to stay in the now and songs included "Feel the Vibration," "Live Your Life" and George proclaimed that "love is bigger than war" during the track "Bigger Than War." George, who seemed happy to be back on the New York stage soaked up the love that the crowd (which included Miss Guy and Debbie Harry) was showering him with. He told funny anecdotes in between songs and thanked the crowd for not talking too loudly to each other during the new songs. He especially thanked the crowd for supporting his new album - [Accorging2G]
With a new solo album out, Boy George made his NYC live stage return last night (4/22) at Irving Plaza, part of his current tour. The two-hour set featured much of the new album, covers (Yoko Ono, Bread, T. Rex, Bob Dylan), solo material but just a mere four Culture Club songs ("Church of the Poison Mind," "Karma Chameleon," "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?" and "Victims"). What, no "Time (Clock of the Heart)"?

Full setlist, videos and more pictures from the show are below...

Apr 23, 2014 1:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

In case you forgot (or, never knew in the first place), Queen Latifah is back on television with her own daytime talk show The Queen Latifah Show. Not one to let Ellen have all the musical draw, the Queen invited Swedish synthpop act Little Dragon to perform their new song “Paris”. Oh, and there were bubbles! Catch the replay below.

Little Dragon will release their new album, Nabuma Rubberband, due out May 13th via Loma Vista. For more, check out “Klapp Klapp” and “Let Go”. Catch them on tour this summer.

Local Natives Bowery (No-Face Remix) (Stereogum Premiere)
Apr 23, 2014 1:02pm | StereoGum

Last January Local Natives dropped one of the first good albums of 2013, Hummingbird. It closed with “Bowery,” a song that went all over the place fitting crashing drums, bright piano melodies, and pummeling drum machines into a couple climactic minutes. The new remix by producer No-Face jumps around with the same unpredictability but onto different planes as it falls between chiming atmospheric ambience and big, punchy dance music. Listen to it below and head to the band’s website for song stems to make your own remix.

Coldplay return with their new album, Ghost Stories, on May 19th. Taking a page from Arcade Fire, the band will preview the release with an hour-long primetime special on NBC. Simply titled “Coldplay: Ghost Stories”, the program will focus on the band’s sixth LP, integrating intimate, live-performance footage shot in front of an 800-person audience in Los Angeles in March. A press release adds, “Atmospheric projection will deliver awe-inspiring 360-degree imagery around, above and below the band while being woven into the overall filmed narrative.”

The special promises a setlist of new songs, like Ghost Stories lead single “Magic”, as well as catalog classics such as “Paradise” and “Clocks”. For a taste of what to expect, watch a trailer below.

“Coldplay: Ghost Stories” airs on Sunday, May 18th at 7pm ET on NBC.

For more Ghost Stories action, check out MidnightAlways In My Head, Anothers Arms, and the newly unveiled “Oceans”. Also, catch Coldplay on the May 3rd episode of Saturday Night Live

Listen: Call Me Like Dove
Apr 23, 2014 12:50pm | CMJ

Los Angeles native Call Me Like is one-third of the hip-hop trio Pac Div. Likes new track Dove is a layered gem with diverse samples and unexpected movements that will bend your mind. A jazzy horn section weaves throughout, while quick jolts of vocals and a fast-paced drum kick snap in the background. These elements work together to make a seamless and unique product. Give it a listen below.

The post Listen: Call Me Like – “Dove” appeared first on CMJ.

St. Vincent Playing SNL Season Finale With Host Andy Samberg
Apr 23, 2014 12:48pm | StereoGum

Spring has finally sprung, which means what remains of the traditional network TV season is winding down, and with it the 39th season of Saturday Night Live. As such, the show announced its hosts and musical guests for the final three episodes of the season on Tumblr today. On 5/3 Andrew Garfield aka The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will host with Coldplay on musical duties. (Incidentally, Coldplay will be back on NBC a few weeks later.) The 5/10 episode features host Charlize Theron with musical guest the Black Keys. And most excitingly, the 5/17 season finale will feature St. Vincent (in her SNL debut!) alongside host Andy Samberg. If anybody can live up to last year’s kinetic finale, it’s Annie Clark. And if we’re seriously lucky, maybe Samberg and his Lonely Island crew will incorporate Clark into a digital short for old times’ sake. We already know she’s got a knack for music-related comedy.
